Re: Rattail teaspoon, French?

Wow that is a surprise! Thanks Trev. It’s not often I get to find any Maltese silver let alone something that old, really pleased!

Rattail teaspoon, French?

Trying to identify where this teaspoon is from? It has a small fiddle end and a really heavy bowl making it a little odd. It has a makers mark of MA and has other stamped letters plus the owners initial of M on the other side. https://i.postimg.cc/52Mxm7Rs/04-E25-D87-FC5-E-4-A95-BD7-B-76631-E1-D89-D...

Egyptian fork, what assay office?

I recently bought this little silver fork I see that it’s 900 silver and dated 1922 but can anyone tell me the assay office? It’s a small fork of only 14cm long, not sure what it would have been used for? Anyway my first piece of Egyptian silver. https://i.postimg.cc/J0G94b3j/8-AE4-DC2-F-91-BF-454-F...

Re: Russian import mark on English spoon

Many thanks. It would be great to know the history of this spoon as it ended up back in England but we will never know. All it has is the owners initials of RG.

Russian import mark on English spoon

Hi I decided to buy this as it was interesting. Can anyone tell me more about the Russian import marks? I know 88 is 925 silver and the RT is import but not sure what town this was assayed? The ‘CAT’ letters maybe a company? First time I’ve managed to buy a piece of English silver with Russian impor...

Re: Provincial marks?

Recently came across 2 teaspoons with the familiar A.R and Sunburst.

I have an attribution to this maker that I’m currently working on so I really hope to get enough evidence together.

Re: Double duty mark mystery maker.....

Been looking at all the examples I can find of double duty marks and they are the same, the head is facing sideways on the spoons. So really looks like this is a double duty mark.

Trondheim 1844 spoon, who is ECT?

I have this 1844 teaspoon from Trondheim, Norway it has superb marks. I wonder if anyone can tell me who is ECT the maker? The month mark too would be great to know. It’s also dot pricked ‘CTDB 1844 EW’ https://i.postimg.cc/hjBjWwtp/562-D4-A31-0-A32-45-F2-BDAE-FEF076031011.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/b...

Re: Unknown CC maker

On first sight it looked Danish to me. Maybe just the angles of the photographs and often Danish items are marked twice. Not saying it is but first impressions....

Re: New Zealand, Australian silver spoon?

Wow thanks Trev that’s superb info! As far as I could make out she exhibited for the Elam arts school in Auckland in 1912 so that’s why I was on the NZ path. Maybe she studied there?

I love these items they lead to research and peoples lives, it’s so interesting.

Interesting many thanks. I’ve had a search but can’t find much on Kit Turner only the mention about the Arts and Crafts club in 1912. Really hope I can find out more.

My first piece of New Zealand silver so pleased to get this.

New Zealand, Australian silver spoon?

This spoon I paid way more than I would usually pay for a teaspoon but had a feeling it might be interesting. It’s marked STG SILV 1’ KM Turner? The bowl has the hammer marks left. Maybe this time my buy isn’t anything but a modern tourist piece? I was thinking possibly it dates to the 1920’s and is...

Heraldic crown identification on French cutlery

I have a set of French Queens pattern cutlery by Francois-Dominique Naudin who was a very fine Parisian silversmith. Tzar Alexander II owned Queens pattern cutlery by Naudin. Flatware from Naudin's shop would often accompany important services created by Napoleon's imperial silversmith Jean-Baptiste...
